Top 10 Favorite K-pop Songs of 2013

This year’s K-pop list was rather short compared to other years. It might have been because I missed nearly half of the year. Either way, I had to narrow the good K-pop to ten(well, thirteen in all) songs for my Top 10 Favorite K-pop Songs of 2013! Let’s begin!

The K-pop Round Up: October 2013

September 2013 was the worst K-pop month in the world. There was literally nothing going on! But this month is filled with hearty comebacks and artists that make my mouth water. Welcome to the October 2013 edition of The K-pop Round Up!

The K-pop Round Up: February & March 2013

As you probably could already tell, I had to take a bit of a break from writing during March & April. The months have brought about a hideous amount of work and little time for my online deals. But! This means a special edition of The K-pop Round Up! See that title? Nope, you’re not hallucinating. This is the first time I’ll be combining two months in one edition! That calls for quite a bit of writing. Can you handle all the K-pop!?

Fanservice vs. Sexual Orientation: What’s Okay?

The world of K-pop is almost home to controversy; there is never a day that passes when people aren’t debating something.

What’s worse is when people actually logically speak about these situations. Rabid fans declare flame wars and attack those who speak neutrally. Crazy, much?

The K-pop Round Up: March 2012

It’s late, it’s late, I know, I know. But my reasons are always super valid(ahem). Anyway! This is the second installation of The K-pop Round Up! If you aren’t familiar with my brand-spanking new, monthly series, I’ll tell you what it is. The K-pop Round Up is a collection of new Korean releases debuting the past month. Each release usually has a lead MV and that’s what I will be reviewing. I won’t really be going into too much detail about the group itself, unless they’re a debut group/soloist. Not everything released in that month will be reviewed either–sometimes it just won’t interest me enough. But don’t worry, I’ll try my best to capture the juicy stuff.
